Older Rockwell Drill Press - 1 reply
My current Delta drill press has a certain amount of lateral movement in the quill, especially at full extension. This is a common issue on modern drill presses as there is no way to compensate for wear in the head where the quill slides up and down. This is not a problem on most drilling tasks, especially when the starter hole h...

Ready for final sanding, oil, and hardware. A neat example of the effect of oil and age on cherry. The dark piece was from the same batch of cherry and was finished with BLO about 6 months ago.

Here’s how I make half-blind DT’s without a jig. It is based on a 3/4” thick drawer front and 1/2” thick drawer side. This method can be modified to suit any configuration you want.

Question for Laguna 1412 Bandsaw owners - 7 replies
I am considering purchasing this bandsaw. I am not really unhappy with what I have. It is a 1970’s Rockwell-Delta 14” with riser block, 1 HP motor, Kreg fence. It does everything I want it to, but this new Laguna looks sweet. Has anyone else made the transition from a standard 14” with riser to the Laguna? What was the bigg...

SawStop Aftermarket Insert Concerns - 3 replies

It is the one where you use replaceable strips for different widths of blades or dados instead of using a whole new insert for each. Great idea, however having taken a test drive last night I have some concerns about the safety of this product. I tried using t...

DC Dust Deputy Marriage - 7 replies
I wanted to incorporate an Oneida Super Dust Deputy into my system but also wanted to reduce the footprint. I disassembled the DC, and rotated the blower 90 degrees. This required a transition piece that my welder buddy made from scrap 1/8” steel. You could use hose as well, but the spool piece is skookum. The large duct between...

Thein Dust separator for Dust Collector - 5 replies
Any users out there? Did you make one that fits into the bucket or as a top hat on top of the bucket? How well did it work as compared to just using the inlet/outlet piping? How much do you think it cuts down on suction? Thanks
